Club Sports

Club sports are special interest groups organized to engage in and promote interest in a recreational physical activity. These groups are formed primarily to increase individual and team skills and to augment knowledge through a continuing instructional and competitive program.


All students who are enrolled at Rice University are eligible to participate in the program. Faculty and staff members are also eligible to participate in the club sports program unless the league to which a particular club belongs limits involvement to students. Under the supervision of the Recreation Center, the University makes its facilities and services available to participating clubs.


To sustain club status, (i) ensure that Rice University student club status is renewed each year through application to the Office of Student Affairs and (ii) apply to the Intramural and Club Sports Office for renewal of Rice University Club Sports status.

Email clubsports@rice.edu to apply, and please see the club sports manual for more information.
